Ex-Everton striker Oumar Niasse training with non-league club - had spells at Huddersfield, Hull and Cardiff

The forward remains without a team despite the season already three months in.

Former Everton striker Oumar Niasse is training with a non-league club as he bids to reignite his stalled career.

The former Senegal international is currently a free agent and is weighing up his next move.

Where is Niasse training?

Niasse was released by Championship outfit Huddersfield at the end of last season. Having signed a short-term deal in March, he failed to make a single appearance for the Terriers.

The 31-year-old is still without a club despite having Premier League and Europa League experience.

To keep up his fitness levels, the72.co.uk reports that Niasse has linked up with West Didsbury & Chorlton.

The Greater Manchester club play in the North West Counties League Division One South - which is the 10th tier of English football.

That’s a division below AFC Liverpool, Lower Breck and Litherland REMYCA, who are all based in the city.

How did Niasse fare at Everton?

Niasse was signed for £13.5 million from Lokomotiv Moscow on January transfer deadline day in 2016. Roberto Martinez was manager at the time.

However, Niasse would make a total of just 42 appearances for the Toffees, scoring nine goals.

He was jettisoned by Ronald Koeman after he succeeded Martinez in the hot seat in the summer of 2016, while he didn't fare much better under Sam Allardyce Marco Silva and Carlo Ancelotti.

Niasse had loan spells at Hull in the 2016-17 campaign and at Cardiff two years later.

He was released at the end of his contract in the summer of 2020.

What has Niasse said about his time at Everton?

The ex-Akhisar Belediyespor marksman admitted it was tough to take when he was bombed out of Koeman's plans and banished to train with the under-23s.

In 2016, he told the Guardian: “I’m in the dressing-room with the under-23s but I don’t have a locker.

“The other players have where they put their stuff but I don’t. I come with my bag and I just have a place I know. I put my bag down, I train and after, I put everything in my car and go home.

“Koeman said: ‘You have to leave. I couldn’t understand how that decision could have been made after 45 minutes but I just said: ‘OK, thank you'.

It’s his decision. He’s the manager. What can I do? I called my agent and he said he would look into the opportunities for me.

To be honest, I didn’t ask Koeman to explain his reasons. I just thought, even if I asked why, I would never understand. After just 45 minutes, you cannot say to me: ‘You are no good'.

“He changed everything,” Niasse says. “He took my shirt number and he told me I wasn’t allowed to be in the dressing room for the first team; that I wasn’t going to train with them. I had to go with the second team.

“I said: ‘OK, no problem.’ When you say you don’t need a player, you don’t have to see him. I’ve just kept working in training. Even if I’m training with the under-23s, I give them the respect.”
